Description
As a covered wagon party of pioneers, you head out west from Independence, Missouri to the Willamette River and valley in Oregon. You first must stock up on provisions, and then, while traveling, make decisions such as when to rest, how much food to eat, etc. The Oregon Trail incorporates simulation elements and planning ahead, along with discovery and adventure, as well as mini-game-like activities (hunting and floating down the Dalles River).

Hi I am 11 years old. My aunt loves to play all the free games that she can, that she doesn't have to download on her own computer. One day I went over to her and said " What are you playing? " She said " I'm playing The Oregon Trail. It's about 5 people who went across the Oregon trail and you have choices in the game whether to hunt, to trade, you can talk to people. " I said " Cool, is there any way I could try that game" She said sure. Ever sense she let me try that game 4 years ago I have fell in love with it. I play it every chance I have. I come home from school make sure no one is on the computer look up archive.org and start playing this game. I really love this game. Keep making sure you make more games like this and you guys who haven't tried this game yet, should really try it. I just wanted also to thank my aunt for letting me play this game on her computer. If it wasn't for her I wouldn't be her right now, writing this response to this awesome and excellent game.

Subject: You CAN Walk While Hunting
Love this game, I remember playing the original. I see a lot of people say they can't walk while hunting but all you need to do is use the Enter key (Use the one on your number pad on your keyboard if the other doesn't work) Hit once to start walking and once to stop, using the directional keys to navigate. It actually does say that in the pre-hunting screen where it tells you which arrows to use, at the top of the list, but it can be easy to skim over without actually reading. I hope this helps! ;)

Subject: Loved the game :D
Honestly, it was extremely fun. I started as a farmer (first time playing the game). Despite farmer having the least amount of money to spend, I was able to get second place in the highest ranking :). I was able to:
-Have 8 oxes
-Have 100 bullets left over
-Have 900 food left over
-All 5 members surviving
-6 sets of clothing
-2 wagon supplies (wheels, etc.)
-The wagon xD

I am surprised at my results though...Honestly never thought I would get a score of around 6400.

I remember hearing about this game from when my parents were growing up. My friend stumbled upon it in late March this year, in seventh grade, And I just made the high scores as Corncob! Unfortunately, they take you off unless you use a real name. Even though my other friend said he had a better strategy than mine.

Had it easy the entire way until we got to Fort Bridger. No grass and bad water 100 miles both ways. People at the fort said the hunting was good but the bears were as fast as jackrabbits and nothing but squirrels crossed my path. The indians were all complaining about us white folk and my wagon mysteriously caught on fire as soon as I left. All my food and my bullets disappeared so it got rough for a while but somehow we made it. My entire family died on the Columbia but I made it across so 10/10.

Subject: Excellent randomized game
I heard about this game about three years ago. Among the reviews I read the words challenging, hard, merciless, and a must-play classic (among others) were the most popular words to describe this masterpiece so I finally decided to give it a try.

I played for an hour without too many issues, so I could not understand the challenging, merciless and hard part that many people talk about, you just have to heed the advices of the npc that talk to you and be a good hunter (by the way, I did not pay much attention to the first review in the list, kzm007 I think, who accurately said that you could move while hunting, as a result I ended up finding about it halfway through the game.

Finally in my last 50 miles to reach my final destination an ox got injured, three were stolen, one of my companions got his arm broken, one was bitten by a snake and another suffered from dysentery.
Reviewer: kzm007 - favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - December 18, 2015
Subject: An excellent return to the past
I'm really enjoying this game - I was about six when I first played it, and I never quite grasped the concept until I was older.

A FEW TIPS:
===
***HOW TO SAVE***
When in the game window, hit the Esc key on your keyboard, and the game will ask you if you want to save. Then, when you resume the game, even opening and closing the webpage, it will offer to let you played your saved game. No more lost progress due to freezing!

You're welcome :)
===
DON'T LEAVE THE BROWSER UNTIL YOUR GAME IS OVER. IT *MAY* RESET YOUR CONNECTION, FORCING YOU TO RESTART THE JOURNEY! This is irrelevant if you make sure to save progress before exiting.
===
The game will also freeze itself if you shift in and out of fullscreen, or leave the page to do other tasks. You'll have to refresh the page.
===
When you're walking around as a hunter and bump into an obstacle, you stop - there is a small invisible square around the object, where it's been placed into the game; this is noticeable if you have a laptop - tilt your screen back a little, you'll see it very faintly against the black.
===

Other than these quirks (understandable with outmoded technologies), this is a fun experience, and much better know that I know how to save progress - no more all-night journeys for me.

Running ChromeOS on Acer Chromebook. This game also plays nicely hooked to an HDTV via HDMI.

It's 25 years old (a year younger than me), people - stop complaining about in-game purchases. The only purchases you get are with in-game money or trading goods. Apps didn't come about until mobile devices were created. Be grateful it's not a freemium game; that business model only serves the profits of the companies - enjoy this free of charge.

It isn't surprising to me now that I died before I got to the third landmark... I had and am having a lot of fun with this game!
Reviewer: 82Tristan82 - favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - November 11, 2015
Subject: How to solve the name problem
For those of you confused with the name problem, when you finish typing all of your names and the game asks if the names are correct, you must type "yes" as hitting enter for some reason freezes the game. Hope this helps.

Reviewer: VerifyinTr1gIDs - favoritefavoritefavorite - September 9, 2015
Subject: The Shift Button Works as a Caps Lock
For those of you who can't get past the part after entering names, if you pressed the shift button, you are stuck in caps lock. Pressing numbers will make the game think you're entering the numbers with the shift buttons. If you do not press the shift button and enter your names in lowercase, the game runs fine.

However, I would like to know if there's a way to disable shift/caps lock, for those who want to use capital letters when naming. At least maybe offer a tutorial as to how MS-DOS works for newbies like me.

Not sure why it wasn't working for others, but it seems to be working here. I'm running a Mac with OS X 10.10.4 and the current version of Safari, so perhaps a recent Chrome or Firefox will help those who are having difficulty.

Being an Oregonian, I just have this desire to find an information kiosk in the orleg building and somehow arrange for this game to wind up running on that machine. Might distract someone who'd otherwise introduce a stupid bill like yet another attempt to have an Oregon sales tax. ;)

For those interested in getting a high score, choose the farmer, make sure your group's health is good right before the end, not just fair, be patient and don't try to rush to the end, and use your gun to get most of your food. Buying food is dumb, you need that money for more important things like ferry fares and wagon parts.

Subject: Fun!
What a great game. I never heard of it but had a lot of fun right up until I hit that last rock after the last marker. :(
Those with probs need to try Google Chrome. I found that the numbers switch from the top to the keypad at the start of the game (when it asks the month) and that if you start another game they reverse (top keys vs keypad). Not very hard to figure out. And all the directions you need are plainly written. Just read them. On the keypad, when hunting, the 7,9,1,3 buttons give you diagonal aiming and movement. Bullets seem the least critical of all supplies, btw, but get about 300 and you'll be fine. Unless you're a really lousy shot! ENJOY and good luck getting it to load. Oh, and you might read ALL the reviews to get some tips. Reading is FUNdaMENTAL!

Reviewer: Tar Pit - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - January 25, 2015
Subject: Can't Hunt?
For those of you below who can't find the hunt option, it appears when you hit the 'enter' key WHILE TRAVELING on the trail. Each hunt costs one day. The travel screen gives you clues about good hunt locales. Green grass is good. Yellow grass, bad water and poor graze areas are bad.

You can only carry 100 pounds of food back to your wagon per hunt so don't waste bullets for overkill (which also makes further hunts in the area more difficult). A deer has around 75 pounds of food. Smaller game like birds and squirrels are worth less and are harder to kill thus wasting bullets unless you are a crack shot.

Sadly, the biggest target and easiest kill is a buffalo. It's worth around 900 pounds of food so you must leave 800 pounds rotting in the sun. It's quite a guilt trip since several people you talk to lament all the buffalo killing going on. Heh, another history lesson from OT I suppose.

Ethics aside, hunting is obviously an essential skill for the higher levels.

I haven't had any trouble running the game. Took me a while to figure out < and > let you turn diagonal in hunting mode - not the number pad. Also, hitting enter makes your little guy walk so you can get to a better vantage point. For those who couldn't figure out how to hunt, just hit Enter at any point on the trail and it's option 8. I also thought the game was frozen, but I had somehow clicked off the screen - somewhere else on the page. When I clicked the game screen, there was a little blue border around it and I was back in the game! Another time I thought it froze, but for some unknown reason, all of a sudden my number pad worked but my regular keyboard numbers weren't registering any more. So I just started using the number pad. (This didn't work the first time it happened, but I think number lock was off.)

Subject: Great, but can't continue once I leave windown
Love the game, but if I switch over to a different tab or leave the browser open but switch over to another program I am unable to continue playing as it will not register my key strokes

My wife has been telling me about this game for over a decade! How it was the best game ever (she isn't a gamer btw) and how they had so much fun playing this game... yada yada yada... and I have to say it isn't the best game ever but it is a ton of fun and having the chance to play it on my browser with zero issues! gives this a 5 star rating... I even posted it on my blog as well... hope it helps

Subject: How to control?
The game starts up (after disabling AdBlock) and i can easily cruise through the first several pages using the keyboard. But when it loads the screen asking when i want to leave, the numbers stop functioning. I can't get past that screen since i have to punch in a number to select what month to leave.

Anyone have any tips? I'm using Chrome 39.0.2171.95 m (the latest version) on a Lenovo X230 laptop on wireless.

The game will not run. It says a gamepad needs to be attached. I hope eventually a keyboard will suffice eventually! I want to play this game badly!

Subject: Game Doesn't Run
Hello! At first, I was really excited to play this game. It brings me back to elementary school when my 5th grade teacher still had these (don't ask why).
However, as soon as it comes to the screen to select what month you leave in... The game stops working! It will not let you input a date...
I'd really like to play this game... But yeah.

Subject: It DOES work
I travelled 1500 miles then the last person in the group died. I didnt have to use any ammo but sickness and thieves robbing the groups clothes was a common issue the new settlers had.

Subject: Nostalgiac, emulator worked fine for me
I just finished playing a round of this classic childhood game and everything worked fine. I also realized that you can move while hunting... Which I never knew as a kid. Good game, glad it's available.

Subject: One of the best games ever.
The game is incredible. Hunting is very difficult and it's hard to win with everybody alive. 5/5
